Start to Move Library Books

Cannot Tell How Much Time Will Be Consumed in The Work.

11,000 Volumes to be Moved

Conveniences Used to Preserve Proper Classification of Books.

The librarians of the Public Library are at work today moving the first installment of books into the new Carnegie library. No one who appears to know anything about the matter can state the length of time that will be required for the work. A number of trough-like contrivances have been built in which the books will be moved in order to preserve their classified order. As there are something over 11,000 volumes to be moved and arranged, it will be some time before the library will be opened for public use of books.
